MEET KARA – VMP OFFICE MANAGER

I am so excited to join the VMP team! As a faithful social media follower of Val Marie Paper for some time, I’ve grown to love Val’s heart for encouraging and challenging women to grow in their faith while she gives them the practical tools to do so.

A former teacher and coach, I crave organization and efficiency and I’m excited to help bring those two things to the most important part of your life. I’m a Texas girl with a big heart for the community of people that God has placed me in, which now includes you! Some things that make my heart skip a beat: black coffee (keep it simple y’all!), visiting the mountains, and my soon-to-be husband, Dane.

MEET ASHLEY – VMP SALES MANAGER

Wife of 8 years to my amazing husband, Matthew. Fresh momma to our sweet girl Dallas, who will be a year in October. I am born, raised, and still calling Lafayette, LA home. After spending years in the corporate world and climbing the ladder of business success, including my husband and I owning our own business, I am currently a domestic engineer…aka stay at home mom and wife 🙂 I believe in living small, slow, and simple!

My deepest prayer is to do the simple work assigned to me in my little corner of the world all for eternal joy and God’s glory! I strive to “seek things above and not of this earth…” and let my “life be hidden with Christ in God and when God’s glory appears then I appear with Him.”( Col 3:2-4).
